F is for Things Worth Fighting For because our homeland is one of them
O is for Old Glory because those stripes and stars are a symbol of American pride and freedom

Twelve years, and still this day is in our minds and hearts – and always should be. Today I’m reflecting on this 9/11 2013 anniversary. To everyone who took an oath, to protect and serve America before and since that day… Thank You.
